Great Gardens of the Northeast - Lecture - The Garden Club of Back Bay

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Join Adriana O'Sullivan for a spectacular armchair garden tour from Washington, DC to Mount Desert Island in Maine. This presentation focuses on some of the finest gardens the Northeast has to offer...

Dumbarton Oaks in Washington D.C., designed by Beatrix Farrand between 1921 and 1941; Wave Hill Botanic Garden in The Bronx; Kykuit, the Rockefeller estate in Sleepy Hollow, NY; the magnificent gardens at Old Westbury on Long Island; Edith Wharton's estate, The Mount; and Naumkeag in the Berkshire hills.

In New Hampshire we visit the home and studio of Augustus Saint Gaudens and on Mount Desert Island in Maine we will see the Thuya Gardens, the Asticou Azalea Garden and the famous Abby Aldridge Rockefeller Garden.

All gardens are a feast for the eye and all are open to the public.
